I have some cod liver oil to take a supplement, but the taste is sufficiently unpleasant that I am not sure how to finish the bottle off. In the past, I have found emulsified cod liver oil fully tolerable, even pleasant, and I would like to know if it would be simple to make a similar product at home from raw cod liver oil.
The Twinlab website states that the product is
emulsified with natural soy lecithin and apple pectin making the EPA and DHA more readily available to the digestive system for better absorption, assimilation and utilization.
And the ingredients are (in order):
- cod liver ois
- soy lecithin
- orange flavors
- tragacanth gum resin
- apple pectin
- alpha tocopherol
- ascorbyl palmitate
- beta carotene
But it is not clear to me which of these ingredients are required, what quantities, or how to blend them.
- Is there a way that I can emulsify cod liver at home in such a way that will accomplish this?
- Are there any other suggestions for how to consume cod-liver oil without having either the initial taste or the residual flavor in the mouth and breath?
